I purposely neglected to describe the cards but seeing as you wish to compare mine are matte photo on the front (full colour) and black print on the back.

Marty — I have had a few contacts on PSK31 but not in the SO76 this time.  I have heard several signals 
during the day but none of them have been 10-10 members so I just keep tuning.  Occasionally I have called
CQ 10-10 but don’t get any responses.  We just have to keep plugging away.

And, YES, I miss those days as well.  Wish they would come back !!!

Hi Marty,
I have been seeing a few CQs out here in Arizona on my 10 Meter PropNET operation (28.1188 MHz).
Like you said, by the time I see them and look for them, they have been gone.

The sun has been a bit of a pill this week. Solar winds have been pretty disturbed.
Be patient. I think by the weekend it will improve or at least a few more on.

I hope to get on a little tomorrow and Saturday myself. Check PropNET to see real-time reports.
http://propnet.org/catch3.php?band=HY&last=4&call=&center=US
The band is a little open now. 22:30 UTC

Re: QSL Cards

Ray:
 
True, but Garry mentioned making over 800 Q's and he'd be better off paying for a lot of cards at one time rather than reordering. 
 
The difference between 100 & 1000 cards is a couple extra minutes of run time.   What I was tring to say is that UX5UO  was cheaper than his counterparts  else where , including the USA.  They were a bargain. A copy of my card is on my QRZ page.    With vast experience in QSLs (manager for 2 DX stations) anything more than a one-sided QSL cards is a waste of money...  I'm still getting cards with call sign on one side and the rest of info on the other side.
 
If I get cards where there is no indication of "QSL TNX'  or  "QSL PSE"  they get filed because I don't know what the station wants.  I plainly announced that on my QRZ page.  One of my pet peeves.

With any printing, the expensive part is the setup. Once you cover the setup cost, the cost of printing additional copies is quite small. Thus, these is very little difference in the cost of printing 1000 vs 100 copies.

Re: QSL bureau

Bill Garwood
 

I think we have concluded the ARRL Bureau is still the way to go as they are about the only game in town to batch send cards to most places on the planet.  I now only use the outgoing bureau to respond to QSL requests of other stations.  If it is a card I need for awards chasing, I send those direct or use OQRS or whatever method the DX station requires.  If it costs me a few dollars, that is part of chasing DX.  I used to send out maybe 20 or 25 cards at a time every few weeks.  With the ARRL price increase, I'm now sending a much larger batch of cards less frequently.  Will probably end up with three mailings in 2017.


There is another route for QSLing, www.globalqsl.com.  I have not used them but I occasionally get a card from them included in the cards that come from the W4 Bureau.  What is interesting is they are sending me some US cards.  I guess they are sent from overseas so that is how they do it.  The US cards are at least one year old so it is not very fast.

www.globalqsl.com
You only pay for the amount of cards you use, no loss of cards. Don't waste time, enjoy ham radio and the fun of getting QSL cards without the burden of writing them.
Y'all have fun and I'll see you on the waterfall.

Happy Radio!

To put it plain and simple as I can, it's not a feasible idea because of the costs and time involved in the sorting and mailing of the cards.  Someone would have to sacrifice many hours of their time to organize and keep it running. The cost of international postage would have to be charged to someone and I doubt the PODXS has sufficient funds to fund such an operation.
 
Think it would be best to use ARRL Outgoing Bureau or try to ship cards to various DX Bureaus.  BTW, ARRL Outgoing/Incoming Bureaus only accept QSLs for USA stations if they're coming from DX stations outside U.S.; so if you send QSLs to other stations in US you will have to use snail mail.
 
Please note that there are many DX countries which do not have bureaus , but if they do they require that stations in that be members (like Germany , DARC Bureau, only members cab receive QSLs ...  have had a number a returned QSLs recently from DARC). Add to this the fact that bureaus are notoriously slow and one can wait a year or more for their QSL to be answered. (My record is 38 years from a Russian !)
 
PODXS running its own bureau would be ill-advised and would certainly be a large money sucking hole. This is probably something has looked into at one time or another .

I'm trying to work all 13 PSK only and I still need K2E - DE, K2I - NJ, and K2L - SC....and time is running out. Using DM780 with the alarm set for those 3 and never had a hit all day yesterday.  Heard them CW, but nothing PSK.  Monitored 40m early, then 20m most of the day, and back to 40m about 2 hrs after sundown. Has anyone worked them PSK?  If so, sure would appreciate a "where and when" so I have some ideas where to look.

Re: QSL bureau

Jerry N9AVY
 

Had that conversation with another member over the weekend. 
 
Spent 16 years working with ARRL Incoming QSL Bureau; so I have some idea about bureaus. Put in 8 to 16 hours a month just keeping up with the sorting and mailing.  Incoming QSLs at Bureau have fallen off by as much  as 50% or more in past 16 years ; undoubtedly due to LoTW, Eqsl, QRZ.com, HRD and other such services.
 
To put it plain and simple as I can, it's not a feasible idea because of the costs and time involved in the sorting and mailing of the cards.  Someone would have to sacrifice many hours of their time to organize and keep it running. The cost of international postage would have to be charged to someone and I doubt the PODXS has sufficient funds to fund such an operation.
 
Think it would be best to use ARRL Outgoing Bureau or try to ship cards to various DX Bureaus.  BTW, ARRL Outgoing/Incoming Bureaus only accept QSLs for USA stations if they're coming from DX stations outside U.S.; so if you send QSLs to other stations in US you will have to use snail mail.
 
Please note that there are many DX countries which do not have bureaus , but if they do they require that stations in that be members (like Germany , DARC Bureau, only members cab receive QSLs ...  have had a number a returned QSLs recently from DARC). Add to this the fact that bureaus are notoriously slow and one can wait a year or more for their QSL to be answered. (My record is 38 years from a Russian !)
 
PODXS running its own bureau would be ill-advised and would certainly be a large money sucking hole. This is probably something has looked into at one time or another . 
 
Hope I covered this subject. It's 4 am here and I'm probably not to coherent.
